16fps shooting, 60fps 10-bit 4K and dual CFexpress card slots. Canon has confirmed the launch of its next specialist flagship DSLR, the EOS-1D X Mark III, the most powerful camera ever made. Through the optical viewfinder (mechanical shutter), it will reach aiming speeds up to 16fps with autofocus and 20fps in live view mode (mechanical and digital shutter).
With a new AF sensor with 28 times the resolution in the center of the frame when using the optical viewfinder, autofocus will be more accurate than ever. You will have 525 phase detection of AF pixels powered by the dual pixel device of Canon in live view mode. With modern algorithms and AI technologies, Autofocus will also be more reliable and monitor subjects easier.
You will be able to shoot at those rates for quite some time, as the 1D X Mark III will use CFexpress cards (with speeds of up to 1,600 MB / s) and a buffer five times the size of the 1D X Mark II. As a reminder, this version would allow you to shoot up to 170 RAW images without stopping, so 1D X Mark III holders can fire 16fps and 20fps bursts for well over 30 seconds at a time. That kind of photography easily burns out batteries, but Canon said that from the same LP-E19 battery used before, the 1D X III would have a better life.
In addition to JPEG and RAW, consumers get a new 10-bit (HEIF) sort, with a more dynamic range of color palette and a wider color spectrum than JPEG (high efficiency picture file). This is a much compacter choice than RAW, however, edited better than JPEG. The WiFi, the Bluetooth LE, the GPS, a built-in ethernet interface and an additional wireless transmitter are included on the communication arm.
Canon has also shown that 1D X Mark III is the most video-capable EOS camera he has ever designed and has up to 4K60p 10-bit 4:2:2 videos, with Canon Log capture internally (CL). It didn't tell if 4 K video would use the entire width of the sensor and have an overview.
As an advanced model, the magnesium alloy body will be' phenomenal' and weatherproof. Canon did not reveal the resolution of the sensor, price and other important facts since it saves them for its official release. Nevertheless, the last version had a sensor of 20.2 megapixels and a price tag of 6,000 dollars.
The company also unveiled in other news from Canon two new lenses to complete its full-frame EOS RF-mount lineup "holy trinity." The F2.8L IS USM for Sports, Nature & Event shooting is priced at $2,700 RF 70-200 mm but is 27% smaller and 28% heavier than the EF model. A new Canon lens coating named Defocus Smoething— a vapor-deposited coating on a lens element that enhances bokeh appearance. The second model is the RF 3000f/1,2L USM DS. The advantages (and high prices) of Canon's RF mount device are shown in both versions.
